The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most profoundly structured, intensely focused, yet softly spoken range of wines. Powerful yet disciplined Cabernet, generously proportioned Malbec, august Chardonnay.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine...

Pepper Tree have applied their principles of dedicated vineyard management and uncompromising standards of vinification, in the pursuit of a compelling yet accessible Cabernet Sauvignon. Wrattonbully adjoins Coonawarra, the prominent viticultural feature is a series of ancient beach ridges and dunes which run north to south. These are made up of soft crumbly limestone which weathers to produce the red and brown Terra rossa clay loam soils that are so highly prized for growing outstanding Cabernet. Components harvested from good vineyards are treated to a week's vinification on skins at 18C to 20C, followed by an extended term of age in a selection of French oak barrels.
Deep, dark scarlet in colour. Complex nose of cassis and blackberry fruits with a heady mix of lifted spice notes integrated well with subtle French oak. Rich and concentrated, displaying a sweet mid palate, long fruit with complex spice flavours. The nicely structured finish is balanced well by subtle ripe tannins.
